Adult/High School–Star Wars
visual effects supervisor Knoll serves as tour guide on a behind-the-scenes journey, covering all six films in the 365 Days series. The book is a comprehensive resource that includes breathtaking, 360-degree panoramic shots of sets and models as well as concept art, props, film stills, and memorabilia. The author includes firsthand descriptions of both the shots and techniques that made the movies a success. In addition to never-before-seen images, the book contains enough trivia to make any fan happy. Because of its small size, it is easy to hold, and the format is easy to read; each day includes one full-page photo on a facing page and a half-page narrative that explains the techniques in a way that even non-techies can understand. A CD-ROM contains more than 100 QuickTime VR 360-degree panoramas.–Erin Dennington, Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA
